* ComicBook/TheMightyThor was, for a time, cursed by Hela simultaneously to never die and never ''heal''. Oh, and he got his face scratched up by poisoned claws not too long after, leaving him in constant pain. He grew out his beard to hide the scars.

* At the beginning of "Marceline the Vampire Queen", the episode which opens the Stakes arc of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', we have the titular character stuck in the shade of a tree while her umbrella is just out of reach, under the sun. She tries to retrieve it, reasoning that one second of exposure to sunlight should mean nothing for someone who is eternal. She comes to a harrowing conclusion quite fast:
--> '''Marceline:''' ''(staring at her fingertips flayed to the bone)'' One second of eternity hurts ''so much!''

* Clinkz, the Bone Fletcher, from ''VideoGame/{{Dota2}}''. A demon was causing destruction around The Hoven, and a mage cast a spell that would grant eternal life as a reward to anyone who killed it. Clinkz went to fight the demon, not knowing that he would become immortal doing so, and was blasted with hellfire just as his final arrow killed the demon. The result is that he is immortal, but covered in eternal flames.

* [[spoiler:Nessiah]] of ''YggdraUnion'', ''YggdraUnison'', and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'' is relatively blase about simply dying--he's been through it so many times that he's gotten used to the pain, and in ''YggdraUnion'' and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', he dies slowly and painfully several times onscreen, mostly from being skewered or badly beaten. He is extremely ''not'' blase about the fact that [[BodyHorror his real body is slowly beginning to rot]]. One of ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'''s endings has him lose his ability to manifest separately, [[FateWorseThanDeath thus confining him to that decaying body forever]]. The game tries not to draw too much attention to this. [[DisproportionateRetribution Wonder]] [[FridgeHorror why.]]

** Taken UpToEleven in ''Film/{{Logan}}'': thanks to his advanced age, his healing factor isn't what it used to be, and as a result, he is covered in scars and open wounds (which apparently get infected on a regular basis), is visibly stiff and arthritic, has vision and hearing issues, and intermittently has his claws get stuck halfway, which requires him to pull them the rest of the way out and visibly causes incredible pain. It's also caused his drinking to go from steady but controlled to absolutely out of control, and he is frequently visibly drunk or hungover. The years have ''not'' been kind to the man
